Red Bird

The cardinals around the house seem to become more visible when the trees are bare. They flock to our feeder in the morning and just before the sun goes down.  

I found one set of the cork backed placemats at Home Goods after Christmas last year.  I scouted every Home Goods for a second set with no luck and eventually found a set on Ebay for 3x as much as I paid at Home Goods, of course!

I used my painted brass candelabras and Henry Lauder's Walking Stick branches for the center of the table.  I added some lighting and pine cones.  The fat cardinals are from Ross.

Red napkins and Ralph Lauren stemware to finish.  

I usually put small cardinals on the branches, but felt it would be too much with the placemats. 

I decided to put them on the island to bring some color to the kitchen.
